Sinker Honduran Mahogany

BSSinkerMahoganyBSHM1SSSK600Swietenia macrophylla 

"Sinker" refers to woods that have spent some time submerged in water. This particular Mahogany was salvaged from the rivers of Belize, where the logs were floated from mill to port around one hundred years ago. The larger and heavier logs sank and remained submerged and preserved until 2008. Being underwater allows some mineral content to penetrate the wood. This causes it to be slightly heavier and harder. The process has a strong, beneficial effect on the tap-tone of the wood, which was of rare quality to begin with, being 'old growth' and hundreds of years old.
